Local Columbus, Ohio label owner, writer, arranger, producer Jeff Smith, guided the Chandlers through four top-drawer vocal-group killers on their only two 45's. Soul-Group-Harmony-Heaven greets you, no matter which side you drop the arm on, on either of their magnificent 45. Before you today is their most-wanted, Northern Soul anthem with a sweet soul masterpiece bringing up the rear..

Columbus, Ohio throughout the 60's & 70's provided rare Soul scholars with many recordings to consider, this example from the talented Jeff Smith arguably being the finest. Offering riveting Northern Soul one side and sublime harmony Soul the other. As it also does with their super-rare Bleu Rose 45.

From the very outset The Chandlers take you on a moody, sulking journey, conveying "loneliness" that burrows its way deep into your Soul psyche. The lead vocal drags the depths of rejection, whilst simultaneously lifting your senses into a tempting mid-paced dance rhythm slowly releasing its hypnotic charms. The vocal purrs its low tones, as the dismal situation is lifted slightly by some delicious falsetto harmony flitting in and out of a sultry production that evolves into one truly spectacular Northern Soul mover, with a difference.

Flip it over, to be treated to Low Rider excellence, searing falsetto floats on a wave of doo-wah's and choruses.. something The Dells would have been proud to put their name to. Making this a double-header shimmering with pure quality which ever side is you choose to spin.

A Northern Soul classic of huge reputation, backed with a Lowrider sweetener of distinction.
